I will do the best I can to describe what's going on, but even I'm not exactly sure.
At one point one of my computers had been the creator of the homegroup on my network but I did not want that machine to be the "master" anymore. So, I dissolved that home group and created another, which never seemed to work right anyway.
So, I decided I'd try to start from scratch. This morning I withdrew the desktop from the homegroup, which went fine. Now is where things get weird. Both of my laptops, including the one I'm typing from, claim "You've been invited to join a Homegroup" and asking me to enter the password. The only password I ever knew won't work and, to be honest, shouldn't since there should be no machine currently on the network that's "the master" for one.
Is there a way to determine where this "invitation" is coming from? Ideally I'd like to do something to nuke "the invitation" so that I can truly start from scratch in creating a Homegroup in hopes that it could function as they're supposed to.
Any guidance greatly appreciated.
P.S. I've run the troubleshooter and it is turning up nada.
